I have important question

Does watching porn without fapping count also as relapse?

The goal is to get rid of porn addiction mainly, normal masturbation might be ok in some cases but porn in not ok in any way.
So in this way, if you go on and watch porn when you are trying to get rid of it, it’s a relapse. Just like any addiction, if someone is trying to quit alcohol and they go on and drink it, it’s a relapse.


I think the challenge is personal in so many ways. You can count it or not count it, but from personal experience I can tell you, you might think watching porn without doing anything else is okay, but the reality will soon catch up and you will want to watch it more and more until eventually :-1:.

Man, although our community focus on not masturbating (and that’s why it is called “NoFAP”) I think that watching porn is worse than masturbating. I’ve come to this conclusion by reading a book named “Your Brain on Porn” (and I highly recommend you to read it too).

You can stop these TWO terrible things, and it only requires willpower.

Do not give up.
